The Bucyrus City School District Preschool Program is a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award winner from the state of Ohio for the program’s commitment to quality and an ongoing dedication to the learning and development of children. This recognition is the highest the Ohio Department of Education awards to preschool programs throughout the state.
Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to five-star rating.
In addition to meeting all standards for a three-star rating, the Bucyrus Preschool Program earned five-stars because the program has lower staff/child ratios, uses child assessment results to plan activities that best support learning and development goals for each child, works with other organizations or businesses within the community to support children and their families, has an active and organized parent volunteer group, uses input from families and community partners to inform continuous improvement process, and has received accreditation by an approved organization.
Research confirms that the first five years of a child’s life has a direct impact on how children develop emotional well being, in addition to, learning and social skills. For these reasons, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the Ohio Department of Education are committed to improving early childhood opportunities for all children in the state.
